The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s South planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 29 August 2017.

  • Footbridge Farm, Tasley, Bridgnorth, WV16 5LZ (17/01033/EIA) Erection of four poultry buildings with feed bins, one gate house, one boiler house and circular water tank; and associated infrastructure and landscaping scheme. Decision: That, as per the officer’s recommendation, delegated authority be granted to the Planning Services Manager to grant planning permission, subject to: The conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, subject to conditions being amended to ensure that any external surfaces of the development shall be BS18B29, and any other amendments deemed necessary.
  • Proposed camping site at Jenny Knoll, Woodside, Clun (17/01380/FUL) Change of use of land to form camping site to include the erection of 6 self-contained yurts for holiday lettings; one amenity building; installation of sewage treatment plant (amended description). Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons: It is acknowledged that the proposed development could contribute economically to the rural economy by assisting to sustain an existing rural enterprise and would provide opportunities for the public to holiday in an attractive location. However this benefit is outweighed by the harm to the character and appearance of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) that would be caused by the scattered siting of structures on the hillside, which would fail to protect and enhance countryside character and local distinctiveness. The environmental role of sustainability set out in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) is not met by the proposal, which would be contrary to paragraph 115 of the NPPF, and the development would also be contrary to the Shropshire Local Development Framework Adopted Core Strategy (2011) policies CS5; CS6; CS13; CS16 and CS17, as well as the Shropshire Council Site Allocations and Management of Development (SAMDev)Plan (2015) policies MD2; MD11 and MD12.
  • Proposed affordable dwelling north east of Lower Weston Farm, Clun (17/02528/FUL) Erection of affordable dwelling with detached garage; installation of sewage treatment plant. Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be granted, subject to: A Section 106 Legal Agreement to ensure the dwelling remains an affordable dwelling in perpetuity; that Planning Officers be granted delegated powers to attach appropriate conditions relating to materials, drainage, landscaping, boundary treatments, floor levels, maximum 100 sqm gross internal floor area, and any other conditions and informatives deemed necessary; and removal of Permitted Development Rights.
